This might be more effective than the wish list that seems out of control and hope

Some that cross my mind immidiately!

1. Revit's temporary dims (select the object and see dims attached to its extends and changing those values changes geometry)
2. Some of revits relational Capabilites.

3. My favorite of course is SketchUp's Pull-Puss and face creation strategy.
Its simply AMAZING and most of all intuitional

ability to copy/ rotate or manipulate i should say, 3d elements in sections / elevations, wd be one of mine...
other wd be having the option of several screens within one screen (elevation, iso, plan)

My wish is for GS! Get a copy for each software along with a power user of each. Don't let AC programmers get near it! Possible infection!
Give him various tasks and watch him in action!

Posting specific application feature(once again):
ADT's Curtain wall system .Just fantastic!
Combine ArchiCAD's door-window system with archiglazing, window-door builder, storefront windows, curtain-wall objects or anything else you have seen adding the possibility to customize each mullion,infill,profile etc
A little hard to understand at first but once you get it, works like a charm!*

*these are just my words. Try to see it in action by someone who really knows how to use it

I agree. Much more versatility is needed. Without Door/Window Builder, my job would be much more difficult. Archicad windows should be just as good right out of the box. No, they should be even better.

1. Revit's temporary dims (select the object and see dims attached to its extends and changing those values changes geometry)
Sorry oreopoulos,

but this is a feature that I wouldn't appreciate at all. It's so annoying and disturbing when working with Revit (in fact when "fiddling" with Revit).

However this is my wish: A simple built-in tool for a profile/curve extrusion along 3D curve(s).

Revit's temp dims are a very nice feature. Temp dims can become permanent dims with a click, and all geometry can be controlled by highlighting an element and changing its dimension, wheter temp or permanant. Even dimensions in Revit are bi-directional parametric. It's a tool any 3D arch software should have.

As for it being annoying, well, thats just a part of letting go of old habits, and embracing new technology.

Temp dims are a visual aid. It could be turned ON and OFF. As simple as that.
I find myself all the time drawing lines to measure length of walls. OR changing the origin to create a wall at "x" distance of the walls start. OR...

I Undestand that you may find annoying, but such a feature can be TURNED ON or OFF and everyone can be happy

1. NURBS objects - meshes, surfaces, etc.
2. Abillity to open several different files in tabs. Every application has it!
3. Built-in INTELLIGENT calculator that works within the type-in fields.
4. Rotate in Section and 3D.
5. Arcs in Section.
6. 3D polylines and lines.
7. Resizable Pallettes and Toolboxes.

to be continied...

so far all features mentioned here are beyond important to me.
i wd like some modeling tools that microstation has.

Use relative coordinates, man ... no need for relocation of the origin.

I do use relative coords.
Draw a wall.
Then you need to draw a wall 3m from the start of the wall.
How do you do it if not moving the orign.
I have the Relative coords pressed but i need to find the starting point of the new wall. Not create a wall AFTER i found the starting point.
Rel Coord work AFTER i have started the operation of wall creation.
Did i understand wrongly?

Units are meters.

Place the cursor on the start of the wall, type x3+ and press enter.

For another 3m to the right and 3 above type x3+ enter y3+ enter.

Maybe; the language can be misleading

Well here is my MISTAKE.
I thought that when the relative button is pressed the coords that i input are RELATIVE. THere are not. The + symbol in the end makes them relative. But when i have started a wall then the + symbol in the end is not neccesary. Just x3 and or y3 will suffice.

Thx Djorje. No need to move the user origin

Thanks too, Djordje, I did't know that + trick!

There is a feature in AutoCAD that I like very much and I think it will be very useful in AC too:
You start drawing a line/wall/circle, press Shift to determine the direction and type the distance. No need to press X, Y or R, because the direction along the axis is already determined.

Press A to lock the angle you started drawing at, R to type the distance.

I know this, Djordie!
That's why I point it out that the AutoCAD way IS better!
Trere is just a small difference between the way the two applications do it but when one uses these commands a lot it matters.
